Remedies Directive – What does it mean?

The Regulations implementing the Remedies Directive came into force on 20 December 2009. The new Regulations will necessitate major changes in the way procuring authorities run tender processes.

“The EU’s intention in making the Directive was to encourage greater transparency in the procurement process and to cut down on the number of “direct awards” – i.e. contracts let without an OJEU advert. The means they have chosen to do this is to encourage litigation by aggrieved bidders. Therefore this is not just a ratcheting up of the “Alcatel” regime, but a whole culture change designed to increase the number of claims that go to Court.”

The consequences of breaching the regulations are now potentially more serious than ever before.

Simon McCann, Partner at Morgan Cole will give a talk on what this means for both client and contractor, what actions need to be taken and what can be expected.
